I’m a German native educator-turned-translator and author who specializes in English to German and German to English literary texts, and books for all ages. Check out my book “Maya the Bee”🐝 on Amazon! Just the the QR-code in my LI-banner, or go here⬇️:
Book translation is my passion, but generally working with words and language makes me happy. If you need translation, editing, or proofreading, let’s talk!
➡️ You are dealing with a one-woman shop. I listen, ask many questions to make sure I understand your business’s mission, vision, and needs, so your projects get completed as smoothly and timely as possible.
➡️You work directly with one person, I do all the translations and editing myself. Your document safely goes from you to me and back, that’s it.
➡️You need a second pair of eyes for any project. (Fluency, grammar, voice, point of view, etc. )
➡️I am fully bilingual in German and English (living in a bilingual household), and will make sure that your message gets communicated equally in the language you aren’t fluent in.
➡️I get it. I speak your language. I do the research and ask the right questions.
➡️I regularly read books aloud to children and definitely speak their language, too! Love that job, it’s priceless (aka volunteering).
